There’s property right on the waterfront in San Leandro?

Yes, in this East Bay community that appears to be a sea of strip malls when you pass through it driving Interstates 880 and 580, you’ll find a tiny neighborhood of homes with gardens spilling into the San Francisco Bay and decks hanging over the water. 

One of those, 1305 Neptune Drive, hit the market on Wednesday for $1.175 million. 

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home is tucked between Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline Park, the San Leandro Marina and the Monarch Bay Golf Club — and then there’s miles of endless bay.

“It is like this little well-kept secret of just 19 homes that are literally on the water,” says listing agent Jill Carrigan of the Grubb Company. “I have to be honest I’ve been in this business for 15 years and I didn’t realize you could be on the water in San Leandro until I listed this house.”

The sellers built the home in 2008 and are now selling it to sail around the world. 

“They have sailed the world once,” Carrigan said. “Now, they’ve decided as they’re getting older, they want to sail again while they’re still young enough to do so. She’s a physicist and he’s an engineer who builds sail boats. He built a 65-foot-long sail boat for the trip.”

The owners obviously have an appreciation for life on the water and they built a home with an open floor plan and entire walls of glass to take full advantage of the views. The master suite has a deck overlooking the water. Outside, a lawn stretches to the bay and a dining and grilling area is protected with glass walls. 

“Their home looks like something in the canals in Florida,” Carrigan says.

The neighborhood dates back to the 1890s when oyster farms dotted the shallows of San Leandro Bay. Farmers grew tomato, cabbage, cauliflower and kale in farms lining the shore. This means the micro-climate along this stretch of the bay is sunny and warm—making the area all the more appealing for those looking for a pleasant escape within the Bay Area. 

“People grew strawberries. In order to have a farm, you had to have warm weather,” Carrigan says. “It’s not that windy or like Berkeley that gets a lot of cold fog. It really is an amazing spot.”
